Tomi Harmon is a wife and mother of two. She grew up in the Los Angeles area with her mom and developed a love of all animals. Her mother, Alice, stressed compassion and care for all creatures. She cared for critters of all types in her suburban backyard. Tomi moved to East Bakersfield shortly after graduating high school and settled on acreage near Foothill High. She, her husband Jim and their two children, Trey and Allie Sue enjoy time with their horses, dogs, cats, rabbits and goats.
Tomi has worked in the food industry for fine dining establishments such as Seven Oaks Country Club and The Petroleum Club of Bakersfield. She jumped at the opportunity to establish Tomi’s Country Cafe and follow her dream of serving country cooking in a fun atmosphere.
You may remember Samantha Bryant’s outstanding service from just up the road at the now-defunct Clark’s. Sam, a wife and mother of two, has worked at the Cafe since January of 2009. A graduate of Foothill High class of ‘91, Sam has lived in East Bakersfield her whole life. She and her family enjoy the outdoors, spending time at their family cabin on Breckenridge Mountain and family BBQ’s.
